I expect though we will see...

Jones
MacKinnon/Drouin
MacKinnon/Drouin
Barkov

That opens the world of possibilities...and I would suggest that Monahan is probably the Oilers pick from 5-8 OV. I expect Nichushkin to do a Grigorenko and fall to 8-12, although a great talent. (Signed for at least one more year in KHL I think).
if drouin is available when we select (unless we win the lottery) we'll be taking him, no doubt.... i can't fathom a scenario where drouin makes it past the 4th pick though
